'Be careful with him!' The exclamation might not be the most appropriate, but honestly he was manhandling the boy.
'And you're being foolish. I would never put Liam in danger, and I've told you - Jander is a nice and considerate man, he'd never dream of hurting a child - or a person for that matter.' How could she possibly get him to understand what a nice and considerate man he was talking about. 'And I told you, you're free to be there too. I'm sure you'd find him fascinating if you just gave him half a chance.'
Her eyes widened in shock when Miles told her he wasn't going to bring Liam by any more. 'Miles Bletchley, don't you dare do that to me!' she snapped, looking at the boy with horror. He couldn't really mean he wasn't bringing Liam by again, could he? Of course not. She needed to think, to cool down, and so she left the room in a huff, waiting for Miles to finish drying off and dressing Liam.
